A sister update and thanks
 
A number of you knew that my sister Debby was hospitalized since Thanksgiving of last year, with leukemia and the complications from treatment. She was awake and aware for most of that time, a person trapped in a body that was failing her.

Last Monday, she died peacefully and with friends. I wrote this Texans-oriented blog post about her, and you can read her obit here.

I'm am writing this here to thank a ton of you who know who you are who have given the both of us support. (BTW, don't PM me right now--I haven't sorted out my PM box lately and it is an almost full mess).

Later this season, I was hoping the Blue Crew and Raging Bulls could help me with something. Some of Debby's friends had a fundraiser for her that helped paid for some of her out of pocket medical expenses, her funeral and if any is left over, goes into her daughter's college fund. I auctioned off two VIP tours of the Texans tailgate (VIP ha! Meaning, hey, I'm wandering around the tailgates anyway, why not take someone around with me?). When I know what games they are coming to, I'll let you guys know and I'd like for y'all to give them the bestest that the Texans tailgates have to offer.

And thanks TexansTalk for being the best distraction out there. When I sat with my sister when she was sleeping, I would make a beeline here first. Texan fans are good peoples.

Steph, I am so sorry to hear about your sister. I had read the blogs in the past and was worried about what was going on. She was blessed to have such a loving sister. You and your family will be in my prayers.

I am sorry for your loss, ma'am. I hate cancer.


The VIP Tour idea was pure genius.

We are very sorry to hear about your sister.

You can count on the Blue Crew for anything. Just let us know when and we will roll out the Red Carpet for any guest you bring.

TC,
I'm sorry to hear about your sister. Only a month ago, I lost my older brother to a motorcycle-deer accident. His death was sudden. I can only imagine what it was like to watch your sister go through her pain over the last several months. My condolences to you and your family in this time of transition.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Is there a way to make donations?

Thanks,
Wolfiegrrl

my deepest sympathies for your loss Steph. As I get older I appreciate the wonder of life in much more complex ways. I've learned to enjoy people for their uniqueness even more after losing a few loved ones myself. I kinda view good and kind people like flowers now that I'm kinda an old(er) fart now, as the bloom is always too short for the people nearest and dearest to us.

I am truly sorry to hear about your sister passing away, I had thought about her off and on since your blogged about giving blood and would send up a quick prayer when I did. As some one who has lost 2 siblings, and just recently my dad, I understand some of what you are feeling. Your sister would be proud with how you have honored her memory. Prayers and best wishes to your family.

Truly saddened by the loss of your sister TC. It's difficult not to think of the posters here as friends, I wish there was something I could do other than words, but sometimes that's all we have to offer. My sincerest condolences.
